Today we have the highest number of deaths in Germany since the beginning of the pandemic ...
It's very scary!

Yes, you're right,

but it's (nearly) too much for me! :'(

I'm very sad about this situation...

Life is but a fleeting moment in time that needs to be lived, loved, and enjoyed.
No one ever knows what tomorrow brings so enjoy today as though it were the last day of your life.
If tomorrow comes, it again will be today.

Yes, many people have suffered in so many ways but as is with all things, It will pass

For me this article just confirms my previous thoughts that they are sadly lacking and the best thing that I can do is look to my own protection.  Mask up, gloves/hand sanitising as necessary, social distancing and no non-essential travel, etc.

Hi DavidR,

Don't forget to properly ventilate.
In between exams we the essential workers will have the windows open and ventilate, ventilate.
This is an aerosol virus, remember!

Next to that boost your immune system as well as you can with a good solid dose of Vitamin D and Selenium.
Round the North Sea older people took a dose of cod liver oil all months having an R in it, a spoonful a day before bed-time.
Full of vitamin A-D.

They even rubbed their children's chest with it, or fishermen took some stingray oil.
The fattiest substance in the world.

Anyway, stay healthy offline and online, my good friends anywhere.
And don't let the virus catch ye, stay alert and keep to the recommendations as best you can.

Ha, ventilate, what and catch cold or flu (with potential concern over covid-19 symptoms)  :)
I get all the ventilation I need during my daily exercise (2,430 days in a row so far), enough to almost get blown away some days. 

I have been taking Vitamin D and C regularly and a general multi-mineral/vitamin for years.  Plus Omega 3,6&9, but Cod liver oil, yuck, remember that with dread from childhood, no way I'm starting that again ;)

Vaccination, I guess is the next stage when that comes around.
